Schola Cantorum on Hudson (SCH), the critically acclaimed choral ensemble based in the New Jersey/New York metropolitan area, will present a concert program of
Advent, Christmas and Epiphany works that highlight the human experience of the Divine through prophecy, preparation and joy. The program, under the direction of
Dr. Deborah Simpkin King, the ensemble’s artistic director and founder, will be performed on two separate evenings:

The concert program will feature well-known American spirituals and early Shaker tunes, in addition to newer arrangements of works on traditional seasonal themes
from composers such as Gerald Near, Williametta Spencer, J. David Moore, and SCH’s 2009-2010 Featured Composer Roger Wesby of Wagner College.
Dr. King comments that “the artistic expression inherent to the season brings a focus on our experience of human potential, sensing a calling, living that calling, and sharing
life’s abundant joy.” Such an artistic expression clearly builds upon the group’s reputation and mission to deepen and enliven the human spirit through high-quality,
passionate musical experiences, embodied in innovative programming and promotion of new works.
